      Road/tunnel closures in the general region between Bergen, Odda/Tyssedal, Gudvangen, and Myrdal/Flam

      Sogn og Fjordane May 5, 2016 at 10:11 AM

      We've planned a trip for the middle 3 weeks of June 2016 that will include some driving, mostly from Bergen to Odda/Tyssedal (Trolltunga visit) around the 3rd week, but also surface (bus/train) from Gudvangen to Bergen the preceding week. Just checking whether there's any road / tunnel closures that we need to plan around. If there's one or more web resources to track this information that would be great too.

      Bergen - Flam - Dayexcursion - Return Bergen in one day

      Flåm Feb 23, 2016 at 4:48 AM

      Hi,
      My boyfriend and I are going to Norway for 5 days. The first day we will arrive in Oslo and the morning after we will take the train to Bergen.
      We would like to do a one day trip to Flam to do the fjord safari and the Snowshoe hike after. End of the Snowhoe hike is 18:00 o'clock and after that we would like to travel back to Bergen. I checked the trains but the last option is at 16:50 by train. Is there a other possibility to travel back to Bergen in the evening? Or do you recommend to have a night over in Flam?

      Hope to hear from you soon.

    • Compressed Norway in Nutshell in November

      Flåm Nov 1, 2015 at 2:21 PM

      Is it possible in early November (next wk), to do a rather compressed one day side trip from Oslo with following:
      Oslo-Myrdal (Eurailpass), Myrdal-Flam (Flamsbana), Flam - Gudvangen (ferry), Gudvangen-Voss (bus), Voss-Oslo
      (eurailpass-hopefully arriving before 24:00 to maximize use of single day on the pass? I have read that there's a single ferry in winter months, but can't pinpoint the time of departure from Flam. I realize it's a very full day, but I'm trying to get best use of my 5 days of train travel in 2 weeks of travel in Norway in November. Thanks for reply.

    • Flamsbana tickets in Flam

      Flåm Feb 1, 2015 at 12:12 PM

      We are more interested in the (2hr, 15min) fjordsafari tour in the morning of June 9, 2015. If we miss the 9:30 tour and have to take the 10:55 tour - it would return by 13:10. That would seen to allow us to take the Flamsbana to Myrdal and return in plenty of time before our 18:00 'on-board' time. Our NCL Star cruise is the only ship in port that day as far as I know. Two questions:

      For those with experience in Flam, the 9:30 fjordsafari seems to provide us with more than enough time to take the train tour as well - but are my assumptions that the 10:55 fjordsafari tour also allows us to comfortably complete the train trip to Myrdal and return correct?

      Since we are the only cruise ship in port that day and not knowing what the weather might be or our desire to take both tours that day, I would like to wait to purchase train tickets until after we return from the fjord tour on the afternoon of June 9. Will that cause any problems?

    • Skjolden to Flam feasible?

      Flåm Jul 30, 2014 at 4:54 AM

      Hi,

      Our ship will be arriving in Skjolden (early August) of a morning and we're desperate to take the children to Flam, mainly for the railway. It seems to be the closest we get to Flam on our itinerary.

      Can we get to Flam quicker by an express boat or something? Or land travel only - if so is this going to be tricky (bearing in mind we have children in tow?)

      Any advice would be much appreciated - thanks.

    • Short connections at Myrdal - safe to book?

      Flåm May 17, 2014 at 12:56 AM

      I'll be taking the train from Bergen - Flåm in August, and have read in some (quite old) forums that the trains are super reliable and, if they are ever late, will wait for passengers connecting to the Flåm railway and/or mainline. However, NSB has a warning on their website about booking short connections. I'm wondering if the trains can be relied upon and whether it is true that they will wait in the event of a journey in either direction being delayed? The options often seem to be either 7min or 90mins between connections, and I understand there is nothing at Myrdal to occupy one's time. Many thanks in advance for your advice!

      Flam Accommodation

      Flåm May 13, 2014 at 12:30 PM

      I am hoping to travel from Bergen to Oslo, stopping on the way to do the Norway in a Nutshell tour. I thought a good option would be to travel from Bergen to Flam, then do the Flam-Aurlandsfiord-Naeroyfiorden-Voss Tour, return to Flam, spend the night there or nearby, and continue on to Oslo the next day. The intention of course is to spend a night in the beautiful Norwegian scenery, but without spending a fortune on the experience.

      Does anyone have an suggestions on a good place to stay in the area?

      And is there any other equally nice scenery anywhere else in the Bergen area?

      Or any other suggestions?
